Congress President Rahul Gandhi earned much criticism after he shared photos from an Army Dog Unit that show dogs being trained in Yoga on the occasion of International Yoga Day.
He captioned the photos, “New India,” clearly taking a jibe at the ruling BJP government, that came into power for the second time in a row.
The post attracted the ire of many, one among them was actor Ranvir Shorey. Responding to the Congress leader’s tweet, Shorey, “Hate much?” He later added, “New India will be when you and your family quit politics.”

His comment however was not taken by Congress supporter in good faith. “The joke is that the Congress party is reduced to clowns like you who worship one dynasty,” he wrote on the micro-blogging platform. “I don’t need a Congress troll to worry about my career either. Collect your 2 Rs per tweet while you can,” he added.
Shorey has endorsed the Amit Shah-led party on more occasion than one. Ahead of the Lok Sabha elections 2019, the actor, in a video, had said, “I believe (ask), have the problems we are facing today, come into existence recently? Was our country on the right path five years back? Were there no riots then? Weren’t the poor killed in the name of caste and religion? Wasn’t there hunger and poverty?”
“Those who could not improve the condition over 60 years, talk about justice right now. Is it fair that a family would rule a country over generations? These people, living in palaces, who have ruled our country over four generations, now talk about hatred. How would they know about the rage that comes after being treated with injustice and poverty?,” he had added.
On work front, Shorey will be next seen in Sacred Games Season 2 alonh with Saif Ali Khan, Kalki Koechlin among others.
